If this isn't enough let's add his personal life into it… John McCain served his country for 22 years, even in a time of war. He suffered as a POW for 5.5 years; he is from a family of distinguished Naval Admirals (Father and Grandfather). Lastly, he has earned the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Legion of Merit, Purple Heart, and the Distinguished Flying Cross.
Now will anyone please compile a list of Chuck Baldwin's voting record for me? (In case you aren't here to know, several people at my church are voting for Chuck Baldwin) You can't because he is not even in politics, has never once voted on anything, has not proved himself one way or another under the pressures of politics, has no experience what-so-ever in running government, has held no government office even on the local level,and has no experience in dealing with all the legal mumbo-gumbo that is put into every bill and amendment presented to the President.
Now, I think anyone who is not totally blinded to this can see that John McCain's records prove he is worthy of our vote. Of course he will have voted sometimes to things that we may think are wrong, but don't forget – you don't understand all of the hidden language Democrats could have slipped into those bills which may be the reason he had to vote against it. No candidate will vote exactly how we want – but John McCain has proven himself far beyond Chuck Baldwin. I have proven my point – take it or leave it. I have a family to take care of and if you still can't see why he is good to vote for, you'll never see it and I am wasting my family's time.
